I just wanted to start by thanking those of you who took the time to read long post!
For just over two years I have struggled with various symptoms. I won't bore you with the huge list but the main ones are flu like body aches, knee/hip/back/ shoulder/neck/jaw pain, migraines, restless legs and debilitating exhaustion.
Despite many complaints to my GP that something was obviously very wrong it has only recently he referred me to a rheumatologist. He believes I have chronic pain (due to an ankle injury), fibromyalgia and possible chronic fatigue.
I'd previously been very fit and healthy. I had a full time job which I loved. I was looking forward to starting a family.
Now I feel lost and broken. I still have my job but I'm taking so much time off I'm worried I will be fired.
How do you cope? How do you live with these illnesses?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
